Review of Ace Tea London Royal Mint Green Tea

As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. Yet for some unknown reason I tend to drink very little green tea. This is strange as it is a great tea to be enjoyed milk free so it is therefore perfect for dairy free me. I have tried a couple of brands of green tea of varying qualities. So when Ace Tea London contacted me and asked if I would like to try and review their royal mint green tea I of course said yes.

I liked the packaging of this tea from its light green theme with an ace to centre of the front of the box. I liked the touch of the ace cut out to the side of the box and allowing you to see the tea stockings inside. Onto the ingredients list mint leaf and green tea are listed. No allergens are highlighted and there is no may contain warning.

On opening the box it emitted a strong but very pleasant mint aroma. I had yet to open the plastic packaging in which the tea was stored. On opening this the aroma of mint intensified slightly. It was a lot stronger compared to many other mint teas that I have previously tried. This didn’t intensify on my close up sniff test however I was able to smell the grassy undertones from the green tea. On smelling an individual tea stocking both aromas weakened but were still quiet noticeable.

I placed my tea stocking into my teacup and added the freshly boiled hot water. The water soon changed to the light brown / greenish colour. I expected to be hit immediately with a strong mint aroma but this wasn’t the case. Perhaps I am being a tad unfair here as I had high expectations from this tea after initially opening the box. I infused the tea for the recommended steeping time what was noticeable was a grassier slightly woody aroma that I associate with green tea. However, on my close up sniff test the mint became the predominant aroma. On sipping the tea I expected my taste buds to get hint with mint due to the initial strong aroma that I experienced. Instead I initially experienced a subtle grassiness that I associate with green tea followed by strong refreshing mint. I personally have found some green teas to be slightly too bitter, but the subtleness of this was spot on and didn’t impact on the strength of the mint flavour.

So would I recommend this mint tea? Definitely. I liked the subtle aroma to this tea. The mint flavour perfectly balances with the slight bitterness from the green tea resulting in a nice refreshing tea. So if you are either a green or mint tea fan why not give this tea a try. So thank you Ace Tea London Tea for producing a nice mint tea that I can enjoy.

    Mint Tea is my favourite after dinner drink if I’m on a night out. It is great for helping digest rich food. #BestandWorst

      Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my latest tea review. I always tend to have a mint tea after a big meal for the same reason 🙂 Chloe

    This packaging is super adorable, and I love your little teacup too! Mint always reminds me of toothpaste but maybe I need to branch out and try something like this!

      Hi, yes the packaging is fab and a clever design. You really should try some more mint teas only a few taste like toothpaste. I’m glad you like my tea cup it was a gift from my mum to use for my tea reviews, Chloe.

    This is a really good review! So much detail. This would have been good when I was pregnant as I craved my tea and caffeine. Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

    I have not had mint tea in a long time and never thought I liked green tea. Maybe I should give it a go #sundaybest

    • February 12, 2017 / 3:33 pm

      Hi, the two flavours complimented each other nicely so it may be worth giving it a try, Chloe.

  12. June 8, 2017 / 4:18 pm

    Adore mint tea, so glad you liked this one! Might have to try this one ourselves!
